Referring Countries

This display lists all the country domains (".uk", ".jp", ".fr", etc.) of your referrers.

This report uses the 2-character country code on the URL to determine the country. ¬†Therefore, the United States does not appear prominently in this report due to the fact that U.S. sites generally use .COM, .NET, or .ORG extensions.  You may see a small percentage of U.S. sites listed, because those sites end in .us.

Terms Used on Report:


Also referred to as a 'Unique Visitor'.  By default, this value represents a visitor that comes to your site for the first time in a day.  All subsequest visits during the day by the visitor are not considered unique.

The definition of a visitor can be customized.  You can set a custom period of inactivity that will cause the next access of the visitor to be considered a new visit.  The visit definition screen can be found on the 'Setup' menu.

This differs from a page view or hit in that a single visitor can have one visit per day but many page views during a visit.
